Memory Suggestions

Anybody have any suggestions on memory for a computer, other than as
much as you can get?

We have 8000+ dialups who are smacking the radius server very hard
(average of 13 Transactions/sec with peaks in the 40's). This is all
running on a Compaq Proliant 800 with 64 meg of ram in it, has SQL
server 6.5 service pack 4, ODBCv 3.0, and radiusNT v2.2. Memory is
running at around 110 meg in use, so obviously we need to go upto at
least 120meg; what would the suggestion be for 12000+ customers, we are
having some slow logins right now, and the CPU is up pretty high also
(I'm assuming most of this is because of swapping memory out to drive),
I'm assuming more memory would help both of these.
